Tolkien Week 2017: Day 1

The Hobbit - Extract

Yay! It’s that time of year again.

In the lead up to Hobbit Day (22 September), fans dedicate the entire week to Middle-earth related activities.

Here is what’s scheduled on my to-do list for this week:

  • Attempt a second breakfast (at least once :O )
  • Continue reading The Lord of the Rings
  • Visualise entire daily commute to work as if “simply walking to Mordor”
  • Drink afternoon teas (lots)
  • Daily posts on the blog
  • Re-arrange my bookshelf (chronologically or alphabetically?)
  • Drink a mug of beer (and sing the “Hey Ho!” song … alone)
  • WatchΒ The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Extended Edition

That’s it for today. I’m off to some reading. Next post tomorrow.

Have you got any plans this week? Share with us! πŸ™‚

  1. I am so excited for Hobbit Day! Your plans sound great. My plans are kind of in the air and not set, but each day I am going to try and do something having to do with Middle Earth. One thing I am going to do for sure: finish The Silmarillion. Oh, and finish watching the LotR trilogy extended edition (I’ve been in the process of watching it for a month or so… I would love to have a marathon just once).

  2. This week I want to start reading the Lord of the Rings… for the fourth time. There’s just so much great stuff packed in there that warrants multiple readings. However, I might not get around to it. I probably won’t have time to watch any of the movies either…
    Anyway, I’ll enjoy reading what you’re up to while I’m thinking about what I should do!

  3. 5 years ago My friend and I decided to start a Hobbit Party on Hobbit Day. We gather together a bunch of friends, we eat tons of great food, drinks lots of great beer and mead, we have riddles, music and an altogether great time!

  4. This is the year I am determined to not forget to celebrate! XD Your schedule sounds great. πŸ™‚ I am planning on doing a book review of the Hobbit on my Ink and Page Reviews blog, doing a LoTR tribute post on another one of my blogs, doing a cosplay as Tauriel, listening to LoTR music, and probably having a LoTR party with my super geeky family. XD

  5. Those sound like excellent ways to celebrate!

    I’m hosting my 5th annual Tolkien Blog Party all week long, and I’m re-reading LOTR (and teaching it to my niece for her high school lit). And I’ll be making at least one recipe from the Unexpected Cookbook, much to my family’s delight πŸ™‚

    Happy Tolkien Week!

  6. What a great way to spend the week! I have to admit, since things are just getting back to normal, I didn’t get to celebrate quite as much as I wanted to. However, I did have a very Hobbit-like meal schedule (granted, that is a constant now that I’m pregnant) and I planted my vegetable garden that evening. At least I felt very Hobbit-like. πŸ™‚
